"Enter the slightly off kilter world of Dirk Gently, where Norse gods run amok in the streets of London while a holistic detective tries to unravel the beheading of a record producer.

If you haven't had the pleasure of making Mr. Gently's acquaintance go to your local bookstore right now and get them all! "
